I use Vim to edit Ruby code, and the one issue that I keep having trouble with is the comment indenting. It seems that Vim really wants all
# comment marks that begin a line to indent all the way to the left. If I type a
# at the beginning of a line, no matter what my indent currently is, it always drops the whole line to zero indent, no matter whether there is already code on the line or not. None of the normal indent commands work from here either. The only way to move the line is to manually insert spaces.
What I'd like it to do is to just leave the indent where it is when I add a comment mark to a line. I've spent what seems like forever messing with various comment settings and checking the
indent/ruby.vim file, and I still can't find anything that has any effect on this behavior. Can anybody point me at something that works?
